During the Summer my Mr. VQ decided to spoil his wife of 9 years and take her to Mexico for a week of lazing by the pool, reading a good book (or many), drinking my favourite fruity drinks and sew much more...but wait a fabric store, +40 degrees C (104 degrees F) could it be I must check it out...can you say BRIGHTS?
(I didn't see her in the image before hand...well say "Cheese, Senorita"
I look over and the lady that works there take a yard stick, pulls the fabric off of the roll the length of the stick and rips it off the roll right there, no scissors, no rotary cutter, not even one cutting station, just a good ol' fashion fabric (and a million other things) shoppe. LOVE it!!
As a side factoid, a common wage in Mexico (we were in Puerto Vallarta) is 6 Pesos per day. 1 CAD dollar is 12 Pesos...can we count our blessings :)
Until next time, stay happy, colourful and creative
